Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For April 13, 2020

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A new rule may be in place that requires you to adjust your approach to something that used to be quite simple. Being forward-thinking serves you well.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take care today that you don't expend your energy in a random, unfocused fashion. You must maintain control over all you possibly can.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can put a new plan into motion before the day is out -- provided a member of your team hasn't dropped the ball. You may reveal a surprise.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You know more of what is going on than you're letting on -- and when the time comes, you can gain the advantage through a surprise announcement.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Contact with someone who has been out of the picture for quite a while has you considering new options today. A plan takes shape quickly.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be tempted by someone who doesn't have as much at stake as you have. Don't let yourself be coerced, cajoled or fooled.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Just by moving about a bit today you can land in a place that gives you a valuable new perspective. Experience and learning combine effectively.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Now is not the time to take any shortcuts; you can benefit greatly today from doing things the hard way. A personal mystery is solved.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Evening brings a revelation of sorts that can propel you forward at an increased pace for the next several days. Be ready!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Things are not likely to unfold as expected today; be ready to make adjustments to your schedule. An important call comes late in the day.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have trouble assessing the passage of time today -- not because of a lack of awareness, but because of a shift in your basic routine.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll react to the day's events as if you have anticipated everything accurately -- but the truth is you have to make some careful adjustments.
